David was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on March 2nd, 1975. He was a kind, faithful, unselfish, gentle person. It was rare for him to complain even through his illness. He loved to be outside either enjoying hiking, camping or even just being in the backyard. He knew almost any tree or flower he saw and if he didn’t recognize it, he would learn what it was.
